      Pros

      Fantastic work culture, great work-life balance, a lot of room for professional development and growth, new leadership actually listens to the employees.

      Cons

      As with any government job, you will feel like things can move a bit slower and that can certainly get frustrating at times. Offices and other areas can get a bit siloed making it difficult to communicate with each other. Overall, department is certainly lacking in diversity, but it has improved a lot even from three years ago.
